Hey Jeff, Mark, Alex, Vitaly and Tim

I think the BA equip has made the change over again. I heard a while back that BA is to switch back to the 747-400 to DEN again, so I was looking at flights and Scheduled tomorrow in on BAW#219 is a 747-400.

Sounds cool to me, but the light sucks right now when BA comes in with this Heathrow thing.

Yep, BA put a 744 on the LHR-DEN route starting Jan 1 and it continues until Feb 23, then returns to a 772.

Yea, looks like we'll have to catch it in Feb, since the light becomes somewhat decent (later sunset)...

Happy Spotting!

Hurray! Everytime I shoot a BA 777 in Denver it's G-VIIJ. Seems like nothing else comes in but that one.

when does the light become really good for shooting at DEN? Is it simply the later sunsets or is there a different light angle at a different time of year there? The recent photos I've seen look pretty good to me!

No, the BA flight just arrives when too dark to get a good shot. As the sunsets get later, you'll have more light to work with. The angle of the sun isn't a problem. Anyways, the sun is always either reflecting off the cornfields or the snow in the winter, teehee!

DEN is certainly not AMS where you have to worry about the sunlight. At times I think we get too much of it!

Bruce,
Personally I don't care for the angle of light here in Denver this time of year. It stays pretty low on the horizon and mostly south. So for the three (soon to be four) north/south runways we have, the light is either head on or behind and slightly above the aircraft all the time. Very little side lighting except for early in the morning and some later on in the afternoon.

But, it does well on the two east/west runways. Only one of them, 07/25 is easily accessible though. 08/26 can only be accessed by a dirt road, but is worth the drive if the light and wind is good.

What Shawn says about the snow and cornfields is partially true. If there is snow (we don't get a lot of it here..) the reflected light is fun to shoot with. The fields all around the airport at times add some unique light, but not all year.

Denver gets more sunny days per year then San Diego, and far less snow then what most people think.

Jeff

The 744 isn't everyday.

I've been looking at job openings in my field, in Denver (which there are none! darn....) because I only visited there once (summer '01) and was impressed with the place. Hard to believe the little snow amount when places like Aspen are getting buried this year.

I do agree - on the photos where snow is reflected on the bottom of the fuselage does create an interesting light to work with. I see a lot of that in the Canadian photos like Calgary, winnipeg, etc
